first order of business is going to be to get our deficits and debt under control. and the good thing is is that there's a forcing mechanism. the bush tax cuts end at the end of the year. we know that we've got the sequester looming that's taking a machete to something as opposed to a scalpel. and after the election, i think that both democrats and republicans have to step back and say, you know what? this is something that the country wants to solve. if i've won, then i believe that's a mandate for doing it in a balanced way. we've already made a tril dolli dollars worth of cuts. we can make cuts. look at how to deal with health care cots under medicare and medicare in a speeerious way, b we're going to also need revenue. we kind of settle on the big question, how much government are we going to have, and how are we going to pay for it, then a lot of the other stuff falls into place. >> can you get medicare done? >> i think we can. >> because republicans demagogue it. democrats demagogue it. everybody's demagogued it through the years. can you go to the republicans and say, guys, we'
and warned. >> now, deficit. big issue for a lot of voters this election season. we know that governor romney has said in the third debate that u.s. is on track to follow greece, that america is the next greece. is this just really hot rhetoric or is it likely? >> it was a wonderful little sound bite, wasn't it? if obama gets elected, u.s. is the next greece. it's just hyperbole the differences between the u.s. and greece are so enormous that it doesn't really bear really fair comparison. not only because the u.s. has got the dollar, which is the world's largest reserve currency and largest market and growing at 2% and employment at 7.8%. all these issues. what the governor is talking about, of course, is debt and deficits. and the very high level of u.s. debt, which at some point is going to have to be addressed. whoever gets elected to the white house, whichever party takes the house and the senate, they are going to have to deal with the debt crisis. >> now, also got a chance to ask richard about his stateside train trip through the u.s. talked to voters from chicago through iowa and utah
, and president bush cut taxes and we went from having a surplus to having a deficit. so i think there's -- i mean if you look at the tax policy center they basically said it's very hard to see evidence of exactly how raising taxes figures into all of this. >> several things. i was talking about president bush 41 in 1990 when they raised taxes, and it was supposed to help us reduce the deficit, in fact, congress just spent all the money that came in. when poll significances raise taxes, whether it's in california, we've seen the devastation there. illinois, we've seen the damage to that economy, maryland. when politicians raise taxes instead of cutting spending, you have lousy economic growth. those states, and you can compare either the reagan recovery, lower taxes, spending restraints, less regulation versus the very weak obama economy, wore where he did all the opposite things of reagan and got everything that an economist would tell you gets bad in an economy. let's compare state by state. california versus texas. illinois versus florida. you cut taxes you get more growth. you raise taxes you
result in all kinds of new jobs. that has not happened. he said he was going to cut the deficit in half. that has not happened. the good news that we have somebody who is running for president that has the know-how. he has the experience. he has got the experience, the record, and he knows how to work with democrats, republicans cannot independents alike to address the challenges we face as a country, and that is why we need mitt romney in washington to fix what is broken and bring back the american dream. i see a uaw member here economy. autos. talk what go said barack obama that said were a few wars. one was about the auto industry. he said, you want to take those companies to bankruptcy. i supported a rescue package for the autos, but what obama said was not true. it was barack obama who took gm and chrysler through bankruptcy, ok? >> right? second, it was mitt romney who absolutely did provide for loan guarantees to ensure the warranties were backed up. that is what every fact checker who has looked at what obama said said he was wrong, he was not telling the truth. now, this is wha
deficit. and will actually provide the middle class with a greater sense of security. and the good news is my plan, the math adds up. if you want to check it out, you can go to barackobama.com/plans. and i want you to share it with your friends and your neighbors and your coworkers. there are still people out there who are trying to make up their minds. some of you who are here may be trying to make up your mind. maybe your girlfriend dragged you out here. oh, no. maybe grandma said you have to go to the obama rally. and you're still trying to figure it out. so i'm asking you to compare my plan with governor romney's. i want you to know what we're proposing, each of us, and see which plan is better for you. and what is better for the future of america. so number one, i want to end tax breaks for companies that are shipping jobs overseas. i want to reward small businesses and manufacturers who are putting down roots here, hiring american workers, creating american products stamped with three proud words "made in america." we can bring those jobs back to our shores. number two, i want to

. governor romney cutting the deficit with women in half in that state. his favorability in colorado has apparently flipped. if this whole thing comes down to colorado, will you guys have the turnout necessary to hold off a romney surge? >> yeah. you know, i don't believe this is going to come down to any one state. there are seven to nine states that are critical that are imbalanced, truly up for grabs. those poll numbers in the head-to-head contest don't surprise us. we said this would be a razor-thin, close election. i can tell you when we were on the ground and speak to women who understand what mitt romney has proposed in terms of politicians getting between their doctors and their tough decisions, we talk to young folks in that state. they are for president obama because they know he's got a vision for the future. both colorado and florida we are doing incredibly well getting out our vote early. >> patrick, thank you so much. we should note we will hear from your republican counterpart next hour. thank you, sir. >> thank you, craig. >> we are keeping a close eye on hurricane sandy
solution. i inherited one hell of a mess in sacramento. a $27 billion deficit. we slashed and now we are down to the last few billion. that is $6 billion to $8 billion. we have to cut more. in the schools and universities. or we get revenue. i am asking the revenue, most of it, from the top 1% because it is the income tax from married couples that are the predominant source of our income tax. they don't even pay a penny until they earn over half a million, then they pay 1%. then they get town three quarters of a million. and whatever they earn more they pay on that only 2%. and we get to a million, not a million saved over a lifetime, but a million earned in 12 months, over that amount, getting from 1 million to 2 million, they pay 3%. i think it is fair. the rest of us will be paying a quarter cent on the sale's tax. it does not apply to food or gasoline. that is another false ad. it is arrhythmia tick. money into the schools for those that are fabulously wealthy or money out of the schools. i can't make it any simpler. >> why is it always education that goes on the chopping b

, we're broke!. >> no, we're not. melissa: we have a 16 droll trillion deficit. we can't throw a way half a billn dollars on a prram that has 16% of workers in a job six mont late if i ran a company with a 16% success rate, i would be out on the street with all of my, and i'm paying for this. you're paying for this. these are tax dollars! this is horrible!. >> 16% success rate is very poor. melissa: it is horrendous. >> this isthe first effort. look, we've done stimulus programs in other industries to get them going in the past, oil, gas, telephones, internet. we've done all these things. we'll have to do this to get the green jobs industry going. we have to start thinki about renewables and so we're not sending our bys and women over to the middle east to fight for oil. melissa: bain capital buys a company, and 16% of the people are employed six months later what do you guys say about bain capital. >> 20% of the companies they invested in went bankru. 8%. grope jobs. melissa:hat means 78% companies in business. 78 versus 16. >> we talk about solyndra like end of the world. melissa:
. the only way to pay for it according to every expert in the country is increasing the deficit or raising taxes on the middle class and that's a real difference, and a real difference to the people of iowa who on average middle class families pay $3600 less in taxes as a result of the president's policies. but as we said earlier today, we didn't get their endorsement in the democratic primary in 2008, but we managed to soldier on. we'll soldier on here. we're confident we are going to win iowa. >> what about pennsylvania because democrats have been saying that it's solid, that they don't pay attention to polls showing that it's more in play, but now $2 million from restore our future from the super pac for mitt romney being invested into pennsylvania. is pennsylvania in play? >> i think that the romney campaign is trying to put it in play. they can't figure out how to get to 270 electoral votes they're losing in ohio. we are tied in florida and our ground game is turning out. they can't win without one of the states. they're trying to expand the map. they're going to be unsuccessful in do

make promises and don't commit to them. the biggest problem in america today, is the trust deficit. that's what the president promised us, and why so many people of all colors came toward him when he was first elected. he was going to reform washington, d.c. and frankly, we haven't achieved that. focused on that more than anything is what has to happen. >> james, this trust deficit, do you think that extends into the halls of congress as well. in terms of the partisanship, that we feel on capitol hill, how do you see us moving past? can trust be brought between the two sides? >> well, it's really difficult. we don't see enough authenticity, especially on the right in terms of the can daylig candidates put forward. when we have comments about women's issue and rape, we can't have that. talking about congress getting back on track, it's not about consensus. instead of taking oaths from grover norquist, can we get money out of politics? can we reduce the amount of special interest influence on the congress? can we reduce the amount of lobbyists or the number of lobbyists that have acc
exceptions of lincoln, lbj and fdr. his oceanic self-esteem, no deficit there, he smolders with resentment that he must actually ask for a second term. >> an orgy of words. >> fantastic. i should have my daughter read it. she's getting ready for the s.a.t. katty kay, take it away. >> george will feeling in flowery form there. >> is there a point there? >> one, he seems to be saying that president obama has a character issue that he doesn't like, that there's a certain arrogance there, that he doesn't feel that he has to actually go out and campaign. and we saw that in the first debate. we saw some of that to get involved in the politics in the first debate. if you ask people around washington, one of the character flaws that they will point to about barack obama is that there is a certain distance and a certain arrogance. but i think the first point that he makes that the president hasn't done anything, i just don't think that's true. it's very hard to look at this president's record and say that he's done nothing. first of all, there was health care reform. you may not have liked it, but
, because he famed to cut the deficit in half. he failed to take our country's problems and instead he ran from them and he blamed other people. we cannot afford four more years like this. we can't go down this path. after getting the run around for four years, it's time we get a turnaround. that is the kind mitt romney is. [ applause ] >> the president is not running on o agenda for a second term. we know where we are headed. debt schedule is going $16 trillion to $20 trillion. we have a tax increases staring us in the face. of all the taxes of obamacare, 12 of them hit middle income tax pace. we were leaving dayton at this beautiful church emanuel in downtown dayton. nice lady said please tell me you are going to get rid of obamacare and this assault to our religious liberties. i have to tell you we're going to get rid of the assault on religious liberties. there is so much at stake in this election. it really does come down to the kind of countries we're going to give our kids and grandkids. the kind of people we're going to be. does the government work for us or not? look, we believe i
not want an administration with trillion dollar deficits every year. they are not happy with the prospect of half of our kids not being able to get jobs and they come out of college, and they don't like the gridlock in washington. our campaign is about real change from day one. over the coming days, i will be talking to people across the country about what those changes will look like. let me mention once you today. it relates to taxes. this is kind of a detailedc. let me just put this into perspective. jenna: governor romney and his speech in ohio today, we just learned from his campaign that he will move on to iowa, but that he is canceling his events tonight and tomorrow -- wisconsin tonight and a kantian thought tomorrow. due to sensitivity of the hurricane, hurricane sandy, that we are watching closely. if you would like to keep an eye on the governor, he says anything about the storm, we will bring that to you. in the meantime, we will get back to some of our hurricane coverage. jon scott is in lower manhattan. jon: you can still see the statue of liberty at the new york harbor here
dollar deficits in washington? >> no!. >> reporter: governor romney drawing the sharp contrasts with government. do you want bigger government with stifling regulations or smaller leaner government to help the private sector to grow and create jobs. he dinged the president in a new ad today suggesting somewhere down the road he may appoint a secretary of business, watch. >> barack obama says he may appoint a secretary of business. his solution to everything is add another bureaucrat. why not have a president who actually understands business? >> reporter: now, as the poll numbers keep moving incrementally as each of the candidates making their final arguments it is interesting to watch the battleground states flip back and forth. obama is up one day, romney sup the next, vice versa. it is clear indication, whether early voting, absentee balloting or getting out there on election day, in these battleground states, jenna, each and every vote really does count in 2012. jenna: in five days anything can really happen as we know as surgeon jalists. john roberts live in virginia today.
group that opposed him. he also promised that he would cut the deficit in half. instead he doubled it. and you know, i know he says he wants to do something to help the budget. but i've learned that in order to balance the budget it starts -- it helps to have actually had a budget. to start with a budget. [ cheers ] >> you can't balance a budget unless you start with one. and he actually -- he actually put out a proposal this last year for the house and the senate to look at. now, there are 535 members of the house and senate combined. do you know how many people voted for his budget? zero. no one voted for his budget. paul ryan and i are going to get america on track to have a balanced budget. [ cheers ] >> he took on during his campaign another big promise. he said he would save medicare. he'd preserve it and protect it and save it from pending insolvency. what did he do instead? he cut medicare by $716 billion.
